    My brother has autism because of that bullies everyday like believe him and it's unnecessary and I feel the same way and I can come some crying about these boys it's just very heartbreaking and so it's very sad for my Princess Di in like that but also when he's around all of us and tell him that he's strong and he's always going to be we're always going to be there for him he always feels better and just because of my little brother is different doesn't mean I don't want to stop loving him just because people are different doesn't mean you can't stop being their friend stop doing that and it's just it's just life

    Not to be a jerk but……. His friend had a pretty cool special ability with the numbers, but coloring in a page and writing a note on the back I really wouldn’t count as a special ability. (Sorry for sound like a bully)

    Most seem people think that autism is a one track type of condition, it is not. It affects each person differently, some have hypersensitivity issues, others have issues being around people. Among countless other affects it can have. My brother has it, and the way it affects him has basically turned him into a P.O.S., though its also made him better at gaming and math a bit. But the other symptoms are a fuster cluck.

    As an autistic kid, I feel this video. Once I found out, I didn’t want to tell anyone about it for ages because I thought I’d get bullied. But then I found it was okay and it made me better as a person having it. So, thank you for sharing this.

    You and your son are Awesome. I am in my 50's and grew up with a brother with special needs. People were less tolerant and understanding when we were children. I love watching your videos and will love them even more now. Please know that you are having an impact on people in more ways than you intended or even realize. Thank you for sharing part of you and your life. Your light shines brightly keep on doing what you are doing!!!!!!!!

      What? You realize there are a ton of married autistic people and that have children. Why do you feel bad for the parents too? A parent t shouldn't have kids expecting grandkids or their child to have a spouse, whether their kid be neuro-typical or not.

    I can’t believe you would say you’re son won’t do great things besides make others happy. Tons of autistics like me succeed or excel and school and beyond and don’t just exist to be inspiration for neurotypicals grateful to not be “afflicted” with the same type of brain as me.

  • lauren

    mark this video is atrocious. your son might be able to do any of those things you mentioned. but he won’t if he sees you saying that he can’t.

    As someone with Aspergers i was wondering what drove you to drop a career most of us can only dream off, and this is a very solid answer. while it is hard for many kids to have their parents away from home for extended periods of time, the aerospace life just has massive peaks in hours where your kid wouldn't get why dad isn't around for whatever he is experiencing in his life. I don't know if this was the reason, or if it was part of your reason to quit, but your need for finding puzzles and answers for yourself is far from fulfilled, so its clear that you made a huge sacrifice to be around him as much as you can and I applaud you for taking that step and being there for him.
